CES 2013: "UnOfficial" Day 1 (CES Unveiled 2013)

*Please Note that January 7th 2013 was Pre-CES 2013 and not an official Day at CES

There were so many things to choose to talk about in this post for the very first “unofficial” day of CES 2013 but sadly I’m not actually at the Show so I can tell you my hands on impressions but however I can explain to you some of the things that were announced today starting with.

Nvidia Tegra 4: It combines 4 A15 CPU Cores and about 72 GPU Cores and has a integrated 4G LTE Modem, which makes the Tegra 4, the Fastest Mobile Processor so far.Next we have the unexpected, Nvidia Project Shield, where on first glance you might thing that its a modified Xbox 360 Controller with a touch screen. However, it is actually a portable gaming device that combines a 5 inch touch screen, the new Tegra 4 Processor and running on Stock Android. This device, can stream games from your PC to your Device and then you could output to a HDTV via the device’s HDMI port. The device also has a MicroSD Card Slot and can all the regular games from the Google Play Store just like any latest Android Smartphone.

Lenovo 27 inch IdeaCentre Horizon, combines the best of a All-In-One, a Laptop and a Tablet to create a “Table Top Computer”. With this computer, it combines great Hardware and Software. And plenty of games could be played in the Table Top position like “Air Hockey”.

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix Hybrid: It is a new Laptop/Tablet Hybrid that can serve as a 11.6 inch Tablet and a Powerful Business Ultrabook with the detachable Keyboard dock.That about does cover just some of the stuff announced today at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. 

LG showed its new OLED TVs with WRGB techology, wide viewing angles, infinite contrast ratio, realistic colours etc.  LG also put forth a 100-inch Mega Smart TV, which isn’t just a prototype or for demo, but will be available for purchase. The company’s new line-up of 4K TVs will be Smarter with 2.2 channel sound and Cinema 3D; the company is working with industry partners like Activision, Google and Disney to produce more 4K content. The Search feature has been made intuitive for recommendations based on your history of viewing and search habits and the new LG magic remote has been designed to understand “natural” language so you can speak comfortably and not like a robot with the voice control on the remote and not TV. LG is also showcasing Google TVs and 3D TVs. Moreover, LG plans to go 100 percent LED and no more CCFL.


Vizio unveiled two Android tablets.  The first is a 10 inch tablet powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 4 processor, which means it’s faster than the latest version of Apple’s iPad and will be running Android 4.2 (a.k.a. Jelly Bean).  It also features 32GB of storage, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi, front and rear cameras, and a standard set or ports connectivity.  The second is a 7-inch tablet that features a Tegra 3 processor, a 1280 x 800 IPS display, 16GB of storage, a 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera, and stock Android Jelly Bean.
